The first demonstration systems illustrating how a blended infrastructure is used to allow Sercos® III and EtherNet/IP devices to communicate over a single Ethernet cable were the main attraction at the booth. The devices were connected with control prototypes from Bosch Rexroth and Schneider Electric, using a common Ethernet infrastructure via a single cable.
